The store now counts 85 million users, largely thanks to Fortnite
How about stopping now and spend that money on improving your store? Give me a reason to choose you over Steam
So wait.... you have to choose one or the other Roland? Im sure others just use both.
You do when they make a game exclusive to their store don't you? The way EPIC is doing things ,it's their way or highway , there is no choice when a game is exclusive to the epic store.
I think it's great that PC gives us options for where we can get our digital games, but I also like simplicity. I have a GOG account, but I mostly use Steam because it's just convenient to have the majority of my PC game library in one place. Sure, using more than one service is always an option, but I would also rather not have a million accounts if I don't have to. Plus, I just like how Steam displays my library.
I think that is exactly the reason they're buying up so many exclusives, actually. To draw people there and keep them there.
Epic Games Store is the beginning of the end for Steam.
It's really not though.
Funnily i have epic and steam and i dont cry abought it wtf pc is digital anyway makes no diff wjere game comes from long as works shutup already
the features make a difference and Steam is the best consumer store on PC period no arguments.
@Teflon GOG is the best for consumers since the games are DRM free but Steam does have the larger library.
Honestly, Epic should start making AAA games again for their Epic Game Store but sadly, they won't because of fornite.
How many of those 85m users have bought or played anything other than Fortnite on the service? Probably less than 1m.
It's enough of a percentage to let Metro Exodus sell 2.5x more than Last Light did on Steam at launch.
True, but without actual numbers that doesn't really mean much
It means that Steam's legacy and the negative blowback from the sudden platform switch didn't hurt Metro's sales potential.
